... not a result of being in one position. Some days the pain extends all the way down to my wrist. Any suggestions?
It is very difficult to say what the problem might be. Based on what you describe it sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck from something like a muscle spasm in the neck.
If the problem persists, I would consult your GP and have it evaluated. You may benefit from a muscle relaxant and some pain medication just until the spasm has subsided. You could try heat on the shoulder and see if that helps. After the doctor evaluates you may benefit from some physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the shoulder joint and attached muscles.
Lauries suggestions are great as always! You may want to consult a chiropracter or a DO who does manipulations. that may help relieve some of the pain too. Try doing this: stand straight with feet together and raise your arms to shoulder level so your body makes a "T". Stand, first, with palms down to the floor then rotate your arms until palms are toward the ceiling. Are you able to rotate your arms palm up? If you are unable to perform this move you may have issues with your rotator cuff and the Dr needs to evaluate it.
all pain is worse at night .i don't know why ,but i believe it's because this is when we are to rest our bodies!as for the shoulder pain it could be your rotor cuff or muscles spasms !either way you are in pain please see your doctor !they can refer you to someone who can ran a ct scan and see what is going on with your shoulder!
